Ecuador’s Tungurahua volcano emits 3 km ash cloud amidst explosions

March 27, 2012 ECUADORTungurahua volcano’s activity has been increasing, Ecuador’s Instituto Geofísico reports. Throughout the morning of March 26, a constant column of steam and ash was rising from the summit crater, reaching up to 3 km height and drifting towards the northeast, where ash fall occurred. Ash fall was significant in the San Francisco and Black River areas, and mild in Baños, the Ventanas en Runtún, Juive, Pondoa, Puntzán and Cusúa sectors. Occasional roaring explosion sounds were heard from small to moderate explosive events. Seismic activity remains characterized by volcanic tremor episodes lasting several minutes, interspersed with tremor bursts and long-period events, which are related to fluid movements within the volcano. –Volcano Discovery

    Saw this from my balcony here in Ambato. Not worried though as having her nearby and active means we have a localised seismic release valve for underground pressures during the shift. If anyone is interested I am in the process of setting up a 2012 survival community out here, away from the city of course.
